Optikal_Illuzion I bought the Smith I/O White Legacy Goggle w/ Ignitor Lens in Toronto during a trade show for $50. The ignitor lens imo is the most versatile, ecspecially for night riding. I have yet to use the other lens.

Snow2k I just bought a pair of these from the same seller. I wouldn't have believed these were legit had it not been for you all here who already ordered.

How was the shipping? I got a one week window but I'm curious if any of you got them earlier or later (I'm in the US). Going on a trip and I'd love to have em before. If not, I gotta figure something else out...

pdxrealtor Ignitor lens is weird. I've had to use it in horrible conditions and had no problems. Also used it bright light and not had any issues either.

I used to use the red sensor mirror in the worst conditions and thought it was better than the sensor mirror until I scratched the shit out of it and decided to use the sensor mirror.

Now I can't seem to use any other and feel as efficient in flat light.

qwezxc12 Well, I'm drinking the Kool-Aid, too.

I just bought these:Smith I/O Black Fallen Goggle w/ Ignitor & Sensor Mirror Lens

My current goggs are Phenoms, and I'll agree that the Sensor Mirror is one of the best lenses I've used for flat light. It's pretty much all I used when I was at Mt. Baker, Stevens Pass, & Revelstoke last year - it was always either socked-in, murky, or dumping. The Ignitor lens is good for sunny days, but I think it's not quite up to the task for a real Bluebird day out west - for that I prefer the Green Sol-X.

2) this is because at night it is near impossible to wear sunnies (clear/low light lens is needed) and i want to interchange them to ones which i can wear boarding...
3) if q1/2 go well, what is the best IO/S lens for night driving? (clear yea?)

Cheers fellas
I dunno about using the I/Os for drifting/driving. I have no experience doing this, but from what you're saying (shit that flies at you) I wouldn't get the I/Os for that type of activity. The I/Os are GREAT goggles but if you're getting peppered by shrapnel they're gonna get scratched real quick. I believe that was one of the only gripes about these goggles, that they tend to scratch easily.

They came yesterday. Sharp goggles!

pdxrealtor I have the Smith I/O with blue sensor, red sensor, ignitor, and platinum lenses. In flat light the blue sensor works best for me.

Ive used the ignitor in blizzard conditions and it actually wasn't too bad. Blue sensor and ignitor is a good combo.

509-pow its true. i bought mine from him 3 weeks ago. 1000% legit. the only think i dont like is that i did not read what the other lens was. i got the Ignitor Lens and a clear lenses. i wanted the blue sensor lens. but that is all my bad. im in love with the goggles.

these are the ones i got.
Ignitor Lens + Red Sol-X
